Everyone playing FrontLine at this moment in T8 tanks

WG introduce test for new MM  at same time.

Is it me who is retarded and do not understand this ?

 

:facepalm:Is this new level of idiocy ?

Must admit it became quite obvious that they tested the new MM, I've been top tier in more matches tonight than I've been the entire month before and to be fair it was a pleasant experience but why on earth they are testing it now when so many play FL is beyond explanation, it's a decision only WG can make. If I had to guess what we're seeing is large company symptom and the lack of communication between different departments or responsibility areas, one side have no clue what the other one is doing.

"we will test the new Matchmaker on the European servers for a few days in near future. To avoid different playing behaviour during this test, we will not share the exact date or timeframe"

 

Above is from the WoT website.....so how do you know they are testing now if WG didn't give a specific date?

...Because they see the new 3-3-9 template (or one of the other new templates) in their team line-up?

They said they are testing it in the upcoming weeks but that they won't tell us when.

 

How do you know they are trying it right now?

It is obvious given the matchups people are getting.  Skill even put it in his stream title yesterday.  Hope they carry on next week when FL is over.

It would make sense to test a new MM system while Forntlines is running and when it isn't doesn't it?

ie you test all scenarios / possibilities. 

With FL taking a lot of Tier 8's out of the Random queue it seems logical to see what affect this has on the MM. 

If they only tested it this way in isolation then yes, that is just dumb

To be fair that doesn't mean WG aren't going to do further testing when FL isn't on and they probably want to know how it performs when it is on.

Just because Frontlines is active right now, it does not mean it's a bad time to test the new matchmaking system.

Depending on how much information they need to gather, it might not even matter for them, and I sure had more fun playing same tier or top tier matches than being in bottom tier.

I don't really understand what is the problem with this, apart from just nitpicking to criticize something.

It is obvious as hell that it's being tested right now. New team line-ups and being top tier much more often. 

 

I never thought about how Frontlines might skew the figures, though.

*edited*   Why would they only test the new MM once? If they are i agree it would be pretty stupid, but if they aren't (which they shouldn't), it will make perfect sense to test it in different conditions....

No one says it is the only time they are going to test it. FL is once in a month and it is not a bad idea to get some data for new MM during FL. I would guess they will test it after FL too.

Possibly less than some might think. It's true that everyone in FL drives T8 vehicles, but that does not necessarily mean that's the tier they play most outside of FL. Taking me as an example, I'm still at the "mostly Tiers 4, 5 and 6" stage outside FL. I'm also quite sure [1] a lot of the people playing FL normally play mostly tiers 9 and 10... Or even no randoms at all, just teambattles and clanstuff. :child:

[1] obviously without any actual data to back this up, but meh...

Surely Frontlines will be dragging players from all over the queue? 

 

So aside from having a smaller population to work with, which might be a good thing to test its parameters, I don't really see the issue?

 

People who play tier 10 all the time and people who play tier 6 or 7 all the time will be playing Frontlines

You can only play FL if you have Tier 8s and probably more attractive to Premium tank players so it will disproportionally draw players from T8 & up.

 

ASFAIK FL has an observable impact on Randoms for those that choose Randoms over FL so it does change the matchmaker.

Same, only time I play tier 8 is when FL is open

That one aren't new, the only one there would actually prove it would be a 5-5-5.
